before. remember, we had big jobless claims reports for a few weeks in a row because of hurricane sandy, superstorm sandy. it looks like those are coming down again. the big jobs report will be tomorrow, which will give us the real gauge of what's happen iin here. they expect only 77,000 jobs added. and the unemployment rate, they think, will tick back up to 8%. 77,000. why? because of superstorm sandy. you didn't have hiring, people getting jobs in the northeast because during that time the last month or so. >> jack welch right now, they went up after the election. >> those chicago people. >>> all morning we've been following major developments in both syria, in egypt and syria there are new fears that they could unleash nerve gas on some of the rebels. that's a report from nbc news, that syria is loading the component chemicals. cnn has not confirmed that report yet. egypt, protoasters have started to gather outside the presidential palace in cairo. lots of anger building after the new president gave himself extra powers. the protests were very violent last night. the clashes killed a
'm going to tell you, it caught me by surprise. most people thought that hurricane sandy would have some sort of effect on these numbers and the labor department is telling us that sandy did not have an impact on these numbers. they looked across the country and in this region and the surveys were within normal range. they don't think it had an affect here. 12 million people unemployed. 40% of those have been unemployed for six months or longer. that's still a problem, don. to the right of your screen, 14.4% underemployment. some people call that the real unemployment rate. means a lot of people are still hurting or have been left out of the market. clearly you do have an improving situation here, improving but still leaving some people behind. this is what the trend looks like. this is the big drought of jobs, financial crisis here, slow attempt to get out of the hole. we want to see 150,000 jobs created or so every month to keep up with the growth in the population of the united states, working age population. you can see the last three months a little bit of an advance each of those m
the pull back because of hiring being depressed because of hurricane sandy. maybe you'll see some of that in the next month, but this was a strong report on its surface. digging in the numbers. look at the right side on that graphic, 14.4% underemployment. the percentage of people working, eligible in the work force, 63.6%, you want that higher, too. >> we also learned about 350,000 people last month simply gave up and stopped looking for work, and that potentially caused that little drop in the unemployment rate. >> that's right. that's important to note, too, 350,000 gave up working. these could be people that are retiring early, taking early social security and they're getting out of the labor market. it could also be people, wolf, who have been on extended unemployment benefits, they roll off the benefits, try to find work for a couple months, they don't, so they drop out, too. >> are the november numbers part of a trend we've been seeing? what does this portend down the road. >> you have on average 151,000 jobs a month, the monthly average. the last couple months before now w
. >> this report was supposed to be weak. superstorm sandy, a number of labor disputes. the fiscal cliff. we were expecting the number to go up from 7.9 to 8%. went down to 7.7. a number of economists, created 146,000 jobs, so before you opine on the report, how accurate and reliable do you feel this report was? >> well, first of all, i think it's important to know there were downward revisions to the past two months, which makes the trend not look as good. it's also important to note that anywhere between 50 to 100,000, which about 86,000 were affected by the storm, is not considered significant in this report. so again, you're not necessarily capturing it also on the 7.7%, that survey was taken very earlry in the month. a week earlier than the establishment survey. the household survey was take b on monday november 5th, a few days later, we had the nor'easter. the secondary storm that hit the northeast and caused insult to energy injury on many and that was not captured in that unemployment survey, so i think that although they say it didn't affect it, they also don't, did have a major increase
there, and economists have thought that hurricane sandy would have an adverse affect, and it hurt some, but there's so much going on that the economy -- >> is it possible we haven't seen the full impact of hurricane sandy, that we still might see some of those jobs lost, and it just hasn't been the numbers have not caught up to it yet to the reality? >> absolutely right. we do have to wait another month to get the full picture of it, but it was interesting that we saw initial claims for unemployment compensation initially spiked up right after sandy, and then they began to go down, and so i suspect next month there will be some effect. >> how strong is this job growth? does this really get us out of the recession conditions for so long? >> interesting question. it has the potential to do that, because think of this. we've had sandy, and we have all of this debate going on over the fiscal cliff, that's driving us all crazy, right? >> yes, it is. >> and what it's also doing is that it has gotten the corporate seblgtor in a position where they're not vin investing. they're waiting to see
